It's true...my hips don't lie! And when my pants start feeling even a teeny bit snug, I know it's time to do some cuttin' back.
One of the first things I begin doing is cooking up some fish. And one of favorites is:
And I don't mean that mushy mess in a can.
I mean a fine filet of Yellow Fin Tuna!
Usually very pricey, especially here in the mid-west! So...I wait for a fish sale, and can find frozen tuna steaks for around $6 a pound.
I take a tuna filet and marinate it for maybe 20 minutes in a teriyaki sauce, or Dales steak seasoning, which is mostly soy sauce. I heat up my tiny cast iron skillet with a drizzle of olive oil, till nearly smokin', then add my tuna steak. Sear on one side, then flip and sear on the other. I like my tuna med/rare, and on the rare occasion I have cooked it beyond that point, it has pretty much destroyed it. Dry and tasteless. I serve it with a fresh romaine, tomato and cuke salad, and a glass of dry chardonnay. One of my all-time favorite Chards is an Australian wine from Lindeman's...Bin 65. Usually I can find it on sale for around $6 a bottle.
If I have this meal for lunch a couple of times in a week, (and been watchful for my other meals) I have ALWAYS dropped the extra couple of pounds that have crept up.
